    So this is my first post of the new year and I'd like it to be different to all the others.

    I am just back in Madrid from a two weeks stay at The Other City. During this time we've walked about the city, celebrated Christmas with our friends, launched great Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve dinners... and re-arranged the decoration in The Other House. I loved what Carlos did with his Bohemian glass and corals collections, mixing them up in a sort of under-the-sea display which is very close to the Wunderkammer concept he's always been so fond of.

    May you all have a wonderful 2015!!!

      That picture of Carlos' arrangement could be framed and hung. A beautiful composition.

      Just wondering if the coral is artificially coloured? I've brought up many pieces diving & they lose their colour fast.

      Thanks everybody for the huge amount of love :), and you're making a long list!!!: JEWELS, AGH, KYRA, EZa, MANI, STEVE, CINDB, SEAN, LLL (!!!!!), VET, MIKE, MacART, IAN, VIOLET, HUNTER, POPS, MUSIKCHOO, RACER, BLUNDERBUSS, MICHELLE, BRATJDD, MARTY, FORTAPACHE, PATSEA, COBALT, FLEDERMAUS and MAC!!!

      @KYRA: I love those gorgonas! specially the small one... ah, the wonders Nature makes!!!

      @KAREN: Thanks Karen! you'll make my cheeks turn coral red ;)

      @BLUNDERBUSS: Not artifiaclly coloured. It's red coral from the mediterranean sea. This comes from the Neapolitan coast. In any cas, the dark one has been polished and it shows the inner skeleton of the coral. The two lighter ones still retain the original outer tissue and it seems to have faded a bit in colour. On the parts where it's broken -a few small chips- you can see the intense red skeleton.

      Hope I'm not raining on your parade, but all coral turns white when it dies & the colour goes fast. It is very porous & takes dye colouring very well. Hey, just being truthful. I even have a piece of black coral (dense) from real deep that is showing an amber colour slowly & black coral is the slowest to turn that I know of. I was a diver for decades (40+ yrs) & brought up many pieces. If kept out of the sun & other light, the colour last longer, but still goes.

      @Blunderbuss. red coral from the Mediterranium is said to never lose its colour. as you can read at the wikipedia -if we're to believe it-:
      "Coral as a gemstone:
      The hard skeleton of red coral branches is naturally matte, but can be polished to a glassy shine.[2] It exhibits a range of warm reddish pink colors from pale pink to deep red; the word coral is also used to name such colors. Owing to its intense and PERMANENT coloration and glossiness, precious coral skeletons have been harvested since antiquity for decorative use."

      Eso es precioso, KIVATINITZ! :)

      Feliz año nuevo también para vosotros

      CARDINALLADY and KUNSTHAMMER (and KIVATINITZ too): thanks for your love!!!
    23. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      All the coral such as you show, unless that is black coral in the background, loses colour fast. Of course, the denser the coral the slower the loss. Course I'm in the Wayward Islands. Maybe we should seed our reefs with some of the Med. stuff.
